Human children often react to multi-sensory stimuli faster than they do to uni-sensory stimuli. However, the latencies they exhibit up to a certain age do not violate the race model as they do in adult humans.

Children do not integrate information the same way adults do in some tasks. Specifically, they sometimes do not integrate information optimally, where adults do integrate it optimally.

In an adapted version of Ernst and Banks' visuo-haptic height estimation paradigm, Gori et al. found that childrern under the age of 8 do not integrate visual and haptic information optimally where adults do.

The SC also seems to be involved in reaching and other forelimb-related motor tasks and has been associated with complex vision-guided arm-gestures in humans.

In some instances, developing animals lose perceptual capabilities instead of gaining them due to what is called perceptual narrowing or canalization. One example are human neonates who are able to discriminate human and monkey faces at first, but only human faces later in development.
